Flexible, Stackable, High Speed Switching!
NETGEAR’s low-cost, stackable, Gigabit Ethernet switches deliver maximum throughput and flexibility where you need it — to high-speed, high-density workgroups at the edge of the network, in the backbone of growing networks or for bandwidth-thirsty file and application servers. The ProSafe GSM7328S and GSM7352S fully-managed switches deliver 24 and 48 ports of auto-sensing 10/100/1000 Mbps interfaces for high-density copper connectivity. Four (GSM7328S) or eight (GSM7352S) hot-swappable Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) gigabit interfaces provide optional fiber connectivity for longer reach Gigabit Ethernet requirements. For high-density fiber installations, the GSM7328FS delivers 24 hot-swappable SFP Gigabit interfaces for fiber connectivity and 4 combo ports of auto-sensing 10/100/1000 Mbps interfaces for copper connectivity. All switches have four high-speed, module bays offering modular expansion for 10 Gigabit Ethernet or 24 Gigabit Stacking connectivity. The non-blocking design of the switches delivers simultaneous, full wire-speed, low-latency throughput to all ports. A full suite of Layer 3 switching functionality ensures reliable routing between VLANs and network segmentation where and when you need it, at no additional cost. By configuring the switches into a stack of up to 8 units across a 48 Gbps bi-directional ring, a high-density, single IP-addressable switch can be built. Robust security features include IEEE 802.1x port-based authentication and access control lists, ensuring that only authorized users can access your network. Secure management of the switches is available through Secure Sockets Layer (SSLv3) for the Web GUI and Secured Shell (SSH) for command-line sessions or with SNMP v3 for network management software. For workgroup deployments in cost-sensitive organizations that require Layer 3 switching, additional Gigabit capacity, high-value price point, flexibility of stacking, and reduced maintenance requirements, NETGEAR’s ProSafe Gigabit Layer 3 Stackable switches deliver the ideal access-edge solution. With their high-value price point, flexible design, and reduced maintenance requirements, NETGEAR’s ProSafe Gigabit Layer 3 Stackable switch solutions yield a high return on investment, and are ideal for delivering highly reliable, converged voice, video, and data services over a single network infrastructure.
In desktop switching environments, wire-speed performance with full QoS control for all 10/100/1000 interfaces is critical. The 4 high-speed 10G/24G module bays provide unprecedented flexibility, whether you are stacking between switches, attaching bandwidth-thirsty file servers, or aggregating critical data to the core of your network.
Easy to Use
Simplify and reduce IT staff workload and mean time-to-repair with intuitive, GUI-based device configuration, and an industry-standard command-line interface (CLI). The EZ-Config tool simplifies initial configuration steps to streamline the out-of-box set-up. For easy tracking of port usage, use the text-based port description to label how ports are used. Stacking capabilities allow you to build a single-IP manageable device with up to eight switches utilizing ultra-high-speed 48 Gbps across intelligent bi-directional redundant stacking links.
